Write It Down...

4 years ago, I had a desire to start a little journal for my kids. I was pregnant with my second, and was unsure of what the future would hold for me. I wanted to have something the kids and my husband could read in the future... I wanted them to remember the things that I saw, felt, thought were funny, cried about.  Little things I wish I could ask my Momma about. These are a few of the things I've written over the years. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. xo
PS: Mullets are hilarious...

2007: I walked into the front room and saw Ella giving Jesus a drink from her sippy cup. (It was a ceramic figurine of him kneeling) It was so sweet, she said he was "thirsty".
2008: I asked Ella what she was looking at 2 different times, she said: "An angel and a dog". We think it was Andys brother that died of Leukemia when he was a kid, and their dog Buffy that had passed as well.
2009: I was reading a book about Jesus to Ella.  She said; "Mom, why does Jesus have marks on his hands and feet? I don't like bad guys all of the time." I started to cry, because of her pure heart, and the picture we were looking at did not have any marks that you could see on his feet or hands...
* One day I tapped Ella on her shoulder.  I asked her, "who tapped it?"  She said "Jesus"! I laughed aloud!
* Ella and her cousin Jackson were playing together, I heard her tell him; "You're my best friend!" They still are today.
* Today Ella said she wanted to wear "Brown" like "Nephi!"
* I asked Ella if she needed a napkin at dinner, she said: "I don't need a napkin, I have a long mouth like Daddy!"
2010: I'm so happy I have Noah to help me go to the bathroom...he is always there to flush it for me when I'm finished! What would I do without him?
* Today Ella told me I had a big bum, because I didn't need to hold onto the toilet with my hands!
* Noah loves Ellas hair! He pulls it every chance he can get, he is mesmerized by it! We don't know how to stop him...he loves teasing and irritating her!
* I was helping Ella get dressed, the shirt she was wearing was to long so I tucked it in. She looked at it and said: "I look like a Grandpa!", and un-tucked the shirt!
* Ella told me we should make a vegetable cake for my Birthday!
One day Bonnie and I were downstairs and we saw Noah holding onto the railing while walking down the stairs! We were both shocked! He never crawled down the stairs again, only walked. He is so eager, and quick to learn.
* Ella told me she wanted a pillow pet for Christmas. She said they were machine washable, and I could get them on! Just like the commercial!
2011: The kids were playing in the pool, Noah kept splashing Ella. She kept saying: ETR, ETR! I finally figured out she was saying CTR!
* When getting ready to go outside and play in the snow, Noah kept asking me to put on his "glubs", for gloves! He still says it that way! I just can't correct him, it's to cute!
* Ella started asking when her Birthday would be...keep in mind this was the day after she had her Birthday party! She has asked me about a thousand times since then!
2012: Ella told us at breakfast one morning that she was on a "special" diet...a moment later she said: "I have cancer like Mommy." My heart broke...IamgettingbetterElla.I.Love.You.
* Noah's new saying to everything is: "Easy peazy lemon squeezy!"
* Noah told me he could still speak "baby anguage" (launguage).
* Ella wondered why she only got $1 from the tooth fairy, and not 5 nickels and a quarter like her cousin Jackson?
* Ella came up to me today and told me she had a special surprise to show me. She made my bed, her brothers, and hers! It was so sweet!

There's too much here to comment on! But, some of my favorites are yelling "CTR!" at the splasher and Noah-the toilet flusher. My kids say easy, peasy lemon squeezy too!
